Bangalore, May 15: Rahul Gandhi once again has been caught in Twitter jokes as the micro-blogging site has been flooded with comments on the Vice President of Congress. This time he became the victim when he skipped the farewell dinner party of the outgoing Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh.

While Congress leaders and ministers have been trying to shield Rahul, Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah lased out at the former for his decision of skipping the dinner party.
